This June Nintendo announced two new Pokemon Games. The first one was Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon which will be coming to the 3DS in November and the second was Pokken Tournament DX which will be arriving to the Nintendo Switch on September 22nd. Although many fans were hoping for a Pokemon Game to arrive to the Nintendo Switch, and this is what we are going to receive players preferred to have a RPG adventure game instead of the fighting style game Pokken Tournament DX.

Release Date

Recently the Nintendo Q1 financial reports got released and one of the things that many fans noticed was that Pokemon RPG for the Nintendo Switch (temp.) will be coming out in 2018 or later. Some fans have interpreted this the wrong way and have thought that this is a delay, however if we go back to what they said at E3 this is no different as they didn’t say that it would be definitely coming out in 2018.

With Pokken Tournament DX coming out this year, a 2018 release for Pokemon RPG seems far too early so our bet would be 2019 as Nintendo clearly stated that we shouldn’t be surprised to see it not coming in 2018.
